The two interpretations of magic
1. Religious believe, that the magic methods are efficient.
2. Money laundering, some equivalent of washing of optical axes with ethanol.
In Century 21, interpretation 2 dominates.
Bad and good magic
Often the persons, who perform magic, insist, that their magic leads to good, not to evel. The goodness or badness of intents of the vizards, pops, can be estimated by the results of their pray.
Use of drumstick
The popular phenomenon of magic is use of drumstick (or even a vacuum-cleaner) as an aircraft.
Use of bishops
In some cases, the church and the priests help to fulfil a request, formulated in prayer, in some magic way. In this section, one leyend is suggested. The legend below suggested as illustration.
One Pope had a Cat. Once upon a day, Cat was hunting a little Bird. The Bird sat on a tall slender birch, and Cat climbed onto this birch. The Bird jumped from branch to branch, rising higher, but Cat followed. When they were close to the top, the Bird flew away, and the Cat began to meow loudly and disgustingly. Pop tried to climb a birch using a ladder, but the ladder was short, and Pop was thick. Then Pop tied a rope to the birch, and began to pull the other end of the rope to his jeep. En fin, the rope broke. The birch worked like a catapult, and Cat was launched away.
One Child wanted a cat. Child prayed, that God provides any cat. At that moment there was a whistle and a thump. The Cat flew right through the open window onto the sofa. Cat was offended by the little bird and fat Pope. So, the Cat did not return to the birch, nor to pope, and the wish of the Child had been fulfilled by a magic way.
Idea of use effects, that contradict basic laws of physics, is used as subject of humor in the sci-fi novel Tale of the Troika  (Сказка о Тройке, 1968) by Russian writers Boris and Arkady Strugatsky. The "Troika on the Rationalization and Utilization of Unexplained Phenomena" is described. However, the same idea is used also for the money laundering at the space research centers and other secret organizations even in century 21.
